Miami Beach a hot spot for bicycle crashes

Click here for details related to extracting data from the FDOT Safety Office. It turns out that FDOT language refers to bicyclists as "vulnerable road users." The increase over the span of time from 2005 to 2013 is thought to be due to increase use of bicycles. The consistent red spot on the heat map above is the south Miami Beach area. However, other areas, like around the University of Miami campus also show a concentration of accidents.
